    Convert/Read Palm Files

    Okay, now that I've got this post in the correct area, I'm hoping someone out there can help me.

    I have an iPAQ 1715, which uses the Pocket PC 2003 Pro platform. We have a product reference database that's only formatted for Palm.

    Can anyone recommend a way to translate/read/convert the file for use on the iPAQ?

    Thank you.

    Neal

    Re: Convert/Read Palm Files

    I believe that a database product called HanDbase has a common file structure for its databases between Palm and Pocket PC if you need continuing use of both formats.

    Perhaps your existing Palm database can be exported to spreadsheet or csv format and then reread into a new Pocket PC database. As well as HanDbase, SprintDb is well regarded in the Pocket PC world, and because it shares its file format with Micro$oft Access through ActiveSync, you have the use of Access to assist in data conversion/import.
